Light on a Hill: The Story of Gatehead Methodist Church

by Julia Hinchliffe

For nearly two centuries, a Methodist congregation has met faithfully week by week in a little chapel at Gatehead on the wind-swept hillside above Holmfirth. A few families, farmers, miners and weavers, built a chapel there in the early days of Primitive Methodism and the story of their lives is intimately connected to that of their church. Whatever the future may bring, this book is written so that the story of Gatehead and its people over the past two hundred years is not lost and the contribution they made to the area in which they lived is not forgotten.
